It’s rounded into shape. Clarity is good and flows have dropped to a doable level. Try fishing a big rubber leg nymph like a girdle bug, Pat’s rubber leg or bitch creek on a long dropper off of a Chubby in the softer water between the main current and the bank. Streamer fish using the Grinch, Kreelex patterns, Sculpin patterns and basic black buggers. For dry fly anglers, fish a Jack Cabe, stimulator, PMX or Chubby. If they’re not hitting the big dry, drop a bead head nymph off of it. Keep a Purple Haze, Parachute Adams and Caddis handy for any rising fish.
